What makes the AWK so special:

The lecture contents of the AWK'20 will be developed by a selection of internationally renowned experts from industry and science in two expert meetings: High-ranking industry representatives from global companies formulate urgent research needs and contribute their experience in the implementation of existing solutions to the lectures. The Aachen production researchers will moderate the process, structure the information and finally supplement it with the expertise of their own facilities and the experience gained from numerous international research and development projects.
